delivery of justice that the american people want from this president. martha: as john mccain pointed out, two of those four americans died in the final hour of a seven-hour siege. there are really still a lot of questions about why not more was done and who did this. senator barrasso, thank you so much. always good to have you on the show. >> thanks, martha. bill: you wonder now if those answers will ever come public at any point. >>> phil mickelson is one of the greatest golfers in the world, taking questions on his taxes and that old fair share of his. mickelson explaining why he backed off on gripes that more than 60% of the his income goes to the government. >> my apology is, for talking about it publicly because i shouldn't take advantage of the forum that i have as a professional golfer to try to ignite change over these issues. i love this state. i grew up here. i love it here. and i'm certainly concerned for it. i never had a problem paying my fair share because, i know that there are very few countries in the world that let you do what you do and, live in this environment. bill:
. >>brian: tell me what you think of this from senator mccain and senator rand paul. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors who were flown to ramstein the next day, that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say it was because an investigation was going on -- >> had i been president at the time and i found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> those were two of the best statements made along with senator johnson's question. what did she do with the statement from senator mccain and the statement from senator paul? she didn't reply at all. then they went on to the next question. >>brian: her answer was interesting and it was very easy, for four months she had the answer. her answer was everything is addressed to me that comes into the state department. but i don't see every cable. it is not possible. >> it's too much for me to read. you know what? it's her job to know things. it's her job to execute
didn't have all of those details republican senator john mccain today at this senate hearing was blistering in terms of these questions. take a listen. what was the president's activities during that seven hour period? on the anniversary of the worst attack in american history september 11th, we didn't have the department of defense forces available for seven hours. two brave americans died in the last hour. >> now, one other question that is still remains after these hearings today is whether or not the white house can claim that al qaeda has been disseminated when clearly the terrorist group is still launching attacks in northern africa and elsewhere. the secretary answered that by saying we have taken out the core leadership like usama bin laden. can you kill the leader and their affiliates just seem to keep growing, shep? >> shepard: ed henry at the white house. thanks. it looks like the u.s. government will indeed be able to keep paying the bills at least for a few more months. the house of representatives today voted to raise the debt ceiling until the middle of may. se
hillary clinton in 2008, allowed him to beat john mccain in that general election. and you see those numbers, what they were in january, 2009. >> i forget how much people didn't like that war. and still don't like that war to this day. and that brings us to our nbc "wall street journal" poll we will have tonight and tomorrow morning. >> 6:30 tonight with the first numbers. >> get over to first read and see all of mark's breakdowns. >> thanks, chuck. >>> now to breaking news out of the african nation of algeria, conflicting reports about that hostage situation at a gas plant in the sahara desert. al qaeda-linked militants and local residents claim algerian military helicopters attacked the site this morning. killing at least 15 kidnappers and 35 hostages. a group believed to include foreign civilians. however, an algerian security source tells reuters that dozens of those hostages actually escaped. and yet another report says some hostages are still being held. according to the militants, the kidnapping is present to protest french military strikes against the islamist rebels in mali.
and with people who are not republicans. >> it's why john mccain was popular in 2000. why chris christie has a honeymoon and why barack obama even though the approval late rate at 48%, 49% on policy, he has a high personal rating and 72% of the public like him and i think because he's not been touched by scandal, not been called out as someone to say one thing and do the other. that his whole brand, the post part son pragmatic brand is why he was elected overwhelmingly in 2008 and with all the excitement that's around the last inauguration. now, you can argue he hasn't livered up to the potential but that brand, that notion that you can trust me is what people are looking for in all of their institutions, especially this town. >> great article there. interesting insight. a lot to chew on. >> thank you. >> thank you, ron. good to see you. hope to see you again. >> take care. >> thank you. >>> the body of a chicago man who may have been poisoned before collecting the lottery winnings is exhumed. that looks at the top stories. the authorities say they hope another autopsy of the man will help s
. >> okay. >> gingrich isn't only a well known politician on the show. vice president biden, senator john mccain, senator barbara boxer and olympia snowe all made cameos. >>> clinton said president obama went from a five-stroke lead to a one-stroke lead during their last game, their game last month. he joked about the incident at an event in palm springs, california, telling the crowd, i'm only one down and he leaves at hole 13, and says, got to go. clinton didn't accuse the president of ducking out to avoid a loss, but he admitted playing the presidential card himself in the past. >>> and just in time for an inauguration, the white house releasing a new official portrait photo of the president, shows him smiling with his arms folded, standing in front of his desk in the oval office. the president has more gray hair than four years ago and, of course, speaking of hair, first lady michelle obama rocking a new do, has some bangs. michelle obama debuting the new look yesterday. that was actually her 49th birthday as well. happy birthday. >>> monday, not just the day of president obama's second inau
? >> 99% say their money is lost. >> so much for the nra. john nichols as a friend of bill. john mccain fugelsang joins us when we come back. >> this is "the bill press show." [ music ] going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. [ music ] >> heard around the country and seen on current tv this is "the bill press show." >> bill: wow. 33 minutes after the hour. what a great date, friday january 18th. this is the full court press coming to you live from our nation's capitol. that's washington, d.c. >> that's where we are on capitol hill brought to you today by afsmee the largest public employee and healthcare workers' union in the entire country under pre
, and there are consequences to winning. we remember him using similar words back on health care with john mccain in the room. hey, i won and there are consequences to that. i think a lot of people are raising questions about leadership. to mary katherine's point, juan, the goal is to make sure that a newtown situation never happens again. the president didn't mention entertainment. he didn't mention much about mental health. so if you really want to address these props, if you really want to prevent them, are you trying to make republicans look bad or trying to make a solution here? >> martha, the first part of your question is about power, the exercise of power. and let me point out that president bush, the first president bush, president clinton and others used executive orders on guns in just exactly the same manner. we could go back to president johnson, the aftermath of the '60s assassinations doing much the same thing. martha: that's right. >> this is not out of line with presidential use of power which would seem to be what mr. , senator cruz is trying to argue. and then the second part, you know, th
on the congress, as well. i expect in the next month you'll see these proposals, certainly already, senator mccain and graham and in len dez and others are working together to come up with a comprehensive package. remember, there's been some movement from the republicans as a result of the election. i think they're going to want do it on a bipartisan basis. >> go back to guns for a minute. you listed things you would like to see. it seems clear the president's not going to get everything he wants. if you could put a priority on one thing, what would it be? >> universal background checks. we've got to toughen them. 40% of all the gun sales don't require a background check. there needs to be better federal, state and local coordination, as well. and we've got to repeal the tr amends which say ta background checks can only be kept for 24 hours. that's ridiculous. we ought to be able to keep them and share them. >> what are you also say when you talk about universal background checks, what do you say to folks who do not like this list of gun control policies that the president is pushing and say what
've got some congressional numbers. congress, as john mccain likes to say, when congress is at 14% approval rating, they're down to close relatives and paid staff. >> i want to find the 14%. >> friends and family, that's all. >> 81% disapprove. and then on the republican party, 49% have a negative view of the republican party. just 26% positive. that's their highest negative number since back in 2008, the year president obama first got elected. democrats not doing much better, but better, 38% view the democratic party negatively. so gene, the president's had a pretty good time politically since the election. republicans are starting to figure out how to come back. to the extent republicans have leverage in the upcoming talks, particularly on fiscal issues, where do you think their leverage lies given how unpopular they are and how unpopular congress is? >> well, i think they have less leverage than some people think they have. i mean, i think it would be, frankly, another disaster if republicans try to use the debt ceiling, to force dollar-for-dollar budget reductions. i don't see
. >> alisyn: right. >> obviously, talking about it in front of iowans. >> and john mccain has so humorously pointed out the job of vice-president is sometimes not that rewarding, so if it's not a shoe to the presidency, joe biden has seemed to enjoy it frankly, as you know, got a lot of laughs in the last four years, some intentional, some unintentional and today no different. >> and president obama has given him high profile roles and negotiations with congress that frankly president obama has know the done. he has a much better relationship with members of congress and members on the republican side than president obama does. so, you have to give vice-president biden that and he will likely be used in the upcoming debt ceiling negotiation. >> sure. >> and upcoming fights to come over the sequester and also on the continuing resolution. >> are you surprised bret, three of us on the couch, alisyn using a sports reference, a loose shoe. it caught me by surprise. >> alisyn: i'm unpredictable. >> very unpredictable. >> well, you know what, congratulations, bret you've earned a comp day for wor
